So I have a KWA MKIII, when I used it last fall and shot some cans and stuff just for practice I somehow lost the little tiny o-ring out of the mag fill valve that helps it seal when refilling the mag.
As far as I can tell I may just have to buy a replacement valve off of evike. But, if this happens multiple times it could get a little expensive.
Replacement valves for these things are like $5 or $7, which isnt bad, but it is kinda annoying that I have to get a new one. Seems to me like I should be able to pick up the o-rings in a little package and have a few extras.
These are not regular o-rings and look a little more like a cylinder with a hole than an o-ring.

I'm gonna try to post some pics up here to help out with this issue.

On the attached pics the mag on the right has the rubber 0-ring and the one one the left is the one that I lost the o-ring out of.
I'm sorry if they pics are a bit fuzzy, took them before I got my new camera and really dont wanna go and re-take them with new camera and re-upload.

Buy moondog o rings from Evike, they are slightly fatter than KWA's conventional o rings, so they stay in the valve and provide a better seal.

Don't forget to add a small drop of silicone into the charging port as well, keeps it in place a tiny bit better, so I've heard. It worked for me anyways.

Buy two packages of the red Moondog O-rings, you'll need them for all your gas guns.
